OLX Closes Shop In Nigeria
Popular online market place, OLX, has reportedly shut down its offices in Nigeria, a move that will affect over 100 of its employees.
It was gathered that the workers were formally informed of the decision on Tuesday through a notice of termination, which will commence in March, and will be followed by the management team in April.
According to the Public Relations and Communications Lead, OLX Nigeria, Uche Nwagboso, the company has made provision for financial compensation for the workers that will be affected.
“We made a difficult but important decision in Nigeria to consolidate our operations between some of our offices internationally. Our marketplace will continue to operate here – uninterrupted – as it has since 2010, and we remain committed to the many people here who use our platform to buy and sell every month,” Nwagboso said.
We continue to be focused on constantly innovating to make sure that OLX remains the top classified platform in the country. Of course, we are committed to helping our affected colleagues during this transition and have already offered them meaningful financial and other support.
“As we’ve expressed to them directly, we are extremely grateful for their many significant contributions to OLX’s success.”
OLX, was launched in Nigeria in 2012.
